In terms of state-wide elected offices, the good news is that we placed half of our candidates. The CTPG’s choices for Secretary of State, Treasurer, Controller, and Insurance...

Despite the fact that when half-Asian Elliot Rodger went on his murder spree, he knifed three of his victims to death, the response of progressives has been primarily focused on two topics: “White Male Privilege” and “Gun Control”.

Legislation to outlaw either being white or male cannot be proposed…yet.  However, one of...

In the wake of Tea Party’s initial phases of success and media attention in 2009, progressive counterparts astroturfed their own version: The Coffee Party.

For me, the most troubling aspect of development is that the organizers usurped the beverage that powers my Tea Party activities.
